Sky Complete Bundle review 2017

Hannah Ricci
Tuesday, July 18th 2017

Entertainment? Check. Movies? Check. Sky Sports, Sky Q box and Sky Go app? Check. Everything you could want is there. Or is it?

The Sky Complete Bundle is a serious pay TV package for serious TV fans but there are a few omissions. So is it worth the price tag? Here’s a closer look in our independent review to help you decide if it’s the right plan for you.

Is the Complete Bundle right for me?

The Sky Complete Bundle is aimed at big TV fans who love nothing more than flicking from blockbuster movies to box sets, to watching their favourite sports team live, all in glorious HD and from the comfort of the sofa.

If you have a big family to entertain with a wide variety of TV tastes, Sky’s ultimate TV package is certainly worth a look. But at £81.50 per month, you’ll need a big budget to match. You get a lot for your money but you’ll have to pay extra for some features you might expect as standard, such as BT Sport and Sky Multiroom.

How does it compare to other Sky bundles?

The Complete Bundle is the biggest TV package from Sky. However if you think you might not need all those channels or don’t fancy splashing out that much each month, one of Sky’s other five TV bundles might be more up your street. Use the tool below to see how the packages compare.

Can I bolt on extras like Sky Sports and Sky Cinema?

Sky Sports and Sky Cinema are included in the Complete Bundle as standard. What’s more, the HD pack is thrown in too so you get to see everything in sparkling close-up detail. You’ll get the full 10 Sky Sports channels in standard and high definition, as well as the 11 Sky Cinema channels in both viewing options as well.

Some sports channels aren’t included however, such as specialist channels MUTV and Chelsea TV, and the BT Sport pack, so you’ll have to pay extra to get these.

Sky TV bundles don’t include broadband as standard, but there’s the option to add one of Sky’s four broadband and phone packages to create a three-in-one package. You can choose between standard and faster fibre broadband, with capped or unlimited usage. All packages features a phone line with a pay-as-you-go Sky Talk package.

 
BT Sport £22.99 per month
plus £20 activation fee
Sky Multiscreen From £11.25 per month
Sky Go Extra £5 per month
free with Multiscreen
BT Sport
Free to BT broadband customers, otherwise £22.99 per month plus £20 activation fee
Sky Multiscreen
From £11.25 per month
Sky Go Extra
£5 per month (or free with Multiscreen)

What comes with the Complete Bundle?

The Sky Complete Bundle features pretty much everything Sky TV has to offer. In addition to 444 channels (63 in HD), you get a Sky Q box to pause, rewind and record hours of programmes. You can also access catch-up and on demand programming, although you will need to connect your Sky box to an active broadband router to enable this function.

The Sky Go app is included as standard so you can watch all the channels from your subscription and access catch-up TV on mobile devices wherever you have an internet connection. Sky Go Extra can be bolted on for an additional monthly fee to download content to enjoy later without an internet connection, or you get it free with Sky Multiroom.

Which TV channels are included?

With over 400 channels to choose from, the Complete Bundle has something to keep the whole broad happy, from entertainment, kids and music, to documentaries, sports, movies and much more. Check out the full channel line-up below.

Alternatives

If the Complete Bundle sounds like just too much TV, or too much to shell out each month, there are plenty of other options to get your fix. Sky has five other bundles – the Original, Variety, Box Sets, Cinema and Sports, which feature many of Sky’s best bits at a lower price.

Alternatively, consider Virgin TV for a similarly impressive range of channels and innovative features, or Now TV for the perks of Sky without the satellite dish or 12-month contract.
